Mary shala. Continuing with our study of the life of the Prophet symbol Nevada, he was sent him a sila to Nova via the prophetic biography. In the last few sessions we've been talking about the last number of sessions we've been talking about the digital readout, the farewell pilgrimage of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Hajj performed by the prophets a lot SLM and over 120,000 companions Sahaba Muslims of that time, along with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now,
in the last few sessions, what actually we were talking about was the hood bar of the profits a lot is in the sermon that he delivered at the place of autofac on the day of out of the main day of Hajj, the main component of the hunch, so we talked about that, that is the ninth day of the hedger
that is the ninth day of the hedger and on that particular day of the profits a lot he said, um, as is customary, and part of the tradition of hedge the prophets, a lot of them delivered the sermon, and that of course, sermon of the prophets allottee, some delivered on that day at that place, is, of course, the most legendary sermon of the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, very famously known as football to huddle without the sermon of the farewell pilgrimage or oftentimes even referred to as the farewell sermon of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Even though of course, he delivered his buzz after that, but that was kind of the monumentous address of the in the main
address of the entire life and message of the prophets a lot of setup, in which he summarized the majority of the major issues and themes of our religion and our Deen.
Now, after talking about that, where we left off the process of the hedge, if you recall, or you can go back and listen to the previous sessions as well. What we talked about was in the series in this little section that we are on on the farewell pilgrimage, the farewell hij. We started off by talking about the preparation, the departure from Medina, the journey to Mecca, the aroma of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and how he performed your own route the process and procedure of it. We then talked about
after the overall how the profits are the sum spent four days in the vicinity of the city of Mecca, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he began the Hajj on the eighth of June, he went to Mena, after Minato Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then took the believers to the place of artifacts, where they had the sermon, they prayed, vote and awesome. And then after that, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the believers, of course, engaged in the draw in the supplication for the duration of that afternoon, all the way after praying so hard and answer until the mother of time, they basically engaged in the Torah, as the judge do even till today. They stand
outside to the best of their ability, they raise their arms up in the sky, and they basically make do and the prophets a lot, even the believers, they did that. And they do that all the way to when the sun goes down. hotter Uber shops, right until the sun goes down market uptime comes in. Now, what we'll be talking about is what did the profits allow the seller to do? After that point? What did he do now?
So we pick up from where we left off in the very famous hadith of Javid, the young Companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
And he says that and there are a number of different narrations as well. He says that the prophets a lot he said them continued to stand at autofab to make dua until the sunset, after the sun had fully set. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then departed from arafa. They did not praise a lot of Muslims.
They did not pre market even though the sun had set. This is the only occasion in which, after the sun has set, you still hold off on praying Salatin mode,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he waited until the sunset, then they did not pray Sultan mclubbe they proceeded to the place that has a number of names. It is known by the name of Gemma, the gathering place, and we'll learn exactly why it's called the gathering place. It's also referred to as
the prophets a lot. He said, I'm also referred to as Why do you have sir? Why do you have son? That's another name of the place classically and historically, why do you have sub there is a reference to the idea that that is actually where Abrahamic army along with the elephants that he had brought to destroy the garba that is where they were destroyed. That is where they were destroyed. And where Allah subhanaw taala speaks about in the Parana limb Turkey for for Allah buka be as have been field and after Rocky, Rocky the home feet of Lille, while Ursula Le him Tehran Abbey, Allah subhanho wa Taala sent the birds which rain down a Java to mean sujeet which rained
down the small pellets or stones from the sky. And it basically obliterated the entire army and destroyed the army that came there to try to even attempt to violate the sanctity of the garba the house of God So anyways, this place they came to is known as Gemma the gathering place while they were the army of Avraham was destroyed. And it's also known by the name of was Delica was Delica. And so they basically arrived at this particular place.
After arriving at that place, the prophets Allah LaGuardia he was sent them. He then ordered the companions He then told them to prepare for prayer. He then had an Amazon called had an Impala done. They prayed Salatin mcraven congregation behind the prophets a lot he set up. He then told everyone to stand up. He had a second armor called and then they prayed Salatin Asia in congregation behind the profits on the lower body.
So that's a summary of what happened. And I'd like to go into a little bit of detail in terms of what that exactly was like. Osama bin Zayed, who's whose father was like the adopted son of the prophets a lot recently been hot Ethan
and his mother was one of the women who played an instrumental role in the life of the prophet of cinema. She raised him. So sad to lose aid. He says contura de la sala de Silva, Ashiya arafa. He said when we were departing from alpha when the sun had set, the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam notified everyone, nobody pray Muslim. We will go to a gym or we will go to was delavan we will pretty much live there. They departed sala de Lago Jelena was very young at this time, he was maybe 17, maybe 18 years old at this time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him sit on the back of my camel and the prophets Allah the seven gave him a ride along with him. Osama was known as
Hebrew Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, the Beloved of the Messenger of Allah. And so he says, I was writing behind him. He says, after the sun had set the prophets, a lot of them departed from alpha. He said that but the prophets of autism heard for them a semi automatic nasty Hunter, who the prophets a lot recently heard that there was like a lot of noise that a lot of rush of the people, like people were kind of scrambling. You don't want people to start to kind of rush and it creates a little bit of commotion. Other narrations also mentioned things like z Hammond NASS, like we say in modern Arabic is the higher right so there was just a lot of Russian crowd and hustle and bustle and
people seem like they were rushing
in the profits a lot is turned around and he said the wrong way, then a huge witness said calm down everybody Aleykum Sakina be peaceful, be calm.
In Mira laser de la.
He said that rushing to was Delica will get you know extra good deeds
rushing to Muslim if I will get you know extra good deeds. There's a very kind of side point that I had. Given this disclaimer at the beginning of the discussion of the farewell pilgrimage. I do not want these sessions to necessarily become kind of a fifth class on how to do hij my objective is moreso to focus on how
profits a lot isn't performed to hide and take lessons from some of his actions and his sayings during the hedge. So there is a particular point that I want to make here. There are two points I'd like to make. First of all the profits a lot. He said them as a side note, is highlighting the difference between when we stay at arafa. And when we stay at Mosley for the time that we spent at auto fat is very sacred. And you are supposed to make dua, and you have to basically make dua for as much time as you can, while you are there, do as much as you can. But when it comes to mazetti, for a while, of course, you are in a sacred place you are in the art, these are sacred days and nights.
But there's no particular extra virtue and reward in spending more time at Muslim.
But you can be making your draw, you can be doing everything that you need to do while you are even on your way to wisdom. If you're in a home, it's sacred, a sacred place, you can continue to make dua. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam highlighted the difference, that if it takes you longer to get to him was that he found no problem, no harm, no foul, take your time. But he said, You are wrong. You're doing hij Don't rush because naturally what's going to start happening in a rush is that people are going to start to shove and push and, and tempers will flare and issues will come up. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, We don't do that. So that was an interesting thing. The second
thing that I really want to highlight here, as a lesson that we can derive from this particular moment,
is, and this is a tricky topic. So I'm going to give I'm going to try to explain it to the best of my ability.
The intention is ultimately what matters. In
vinyasa. The intention when performing a deed is ultimately what is of consequence. Now that's the reason why I see that's kind of tricky is because I can't do something wrong. And then claim a good intention. That's not a legitimate way to approach it. And even though some people sometimes, you know, misunderstand, when we say the intention is what matters. your intention is what counts. your intention is what Allah rewards. Some people might misunderstand that to mean that I can do you know, something that is not even okay or wrong word is inappropriate.
Over my intention is good.
I'm lying and cheating while doing business,
but my intention is to make a lot of money so I can give more charity.
Right, that doesn't excuse the misdeed and the misconduct that doesn't excuse it at the same time if I deliberately do not pray, how I'm supposed to pray right Sultan Muslim since we were talking about Muslim right Salah demographers three units, three records.
If I pray only to four Muslim and I just makes Allah says Brother, what are you doing? My group is three you only pray to you ever my intention was to bring the intention counts and it's all good. nosaka not if I do that deliberately.
But where the effort is good, the act is appropriate.
I am following the guidelines and the rules as laid out for me by Allah or his messengers a lot easier, no.
And then the intended outcome or result is not achieved.
The intended result and outcome is maybe or the intended outcome and results is not achieved as I had hoped for it. As one would maybe expect or hope for. That's when the intention does actually count.
That's when the intention matters. Okay. So for example, if I am trying to, if I make a bunch of bait, you know, make a bunch of cookies. And I say that I'm going to sell these cookies after Joomla to collect money so that I can then use that money to give in charity. We can feed the hungry with this money. And so I baked 100 cookies, and we're going to sell them and I hope to raise $100 so that we can feed you know maybe 10 Misaki in 10 forgot or 10 people
People who are in need of food, for example, now
I make the cookies, let's just there's multiple steps along the way, right? I start to make the cookies and I burn all the cookies. Okay?
And it doesn't turn out as I hope for the intention counts, I will get the reward of giving $100 in southern United reasons single penny, I will get my reward. Because I bought all the ingredients that I tried it, you know, spent an hour putting everything together and put in the oven and stood there and waited for however long and got it out. I took a whole afternoon of my time to try to make this happen.
It didn't work out as planned, I will still get my reward.
Maybe I made the cookies and I come and on my way here.
I'm carrying the cookies in and I dropped the tray.
And all the cookies are in the dirt.
Obviously, right? I'm not going to sell that to people to eat. Okay, so in that instance, once again, it didn't work out as I had hoped for I didn't raise a single penny, I get my reward. I come in, I set up to sell. And even though Mashallah Muslims are good people, for some reason that day, nobody bought my cookies. Okay, maybe there was somebody else selling cupcakes and everybody about cupcakes and nobody bought cookies.
And again, I raised $10, my intention was 100, Allah will reward me for 100. See, that's where the intention does count. And the profits a lot of his own his teaching assists extremely valuable lesson, do what you're supposed to do it the right way.
And if the result isn't, outcome isn't ideal, you still get rewarded as if it was done ideally,
as if it was done ideally, right. So these folks are leaving on a thought they want to get to mazeltov sooner rather than later. So that they can pray their moment of inertia. And then they can spend more time that was daddy fi and make sure I get some rest and all of that.
But it's gone, it's taking because there's so much of a rush in a crowd, instead of getting from autofab to was densify in 30 minutes, as a reasonably should take if you look at the distance, but obviously at that time, there's 120,000 people with no infrastructure in place. Now with some level of infrastructure in place, there's 2 million people, or 3 million or 4 million people, right? Trying to get from autopilot to Zoeva. So it doesn't take 30 minutes, maybe it takes three and a half hours. And by the time we get to Mozilla, it's 2am.
And now your brain you're in Asia and you're tired and you're fatigued and right you pray your mother in Asia and then you basically barely sit down, you lie down for like an hour, an hour and a half. And next thing you know, it's time to start getting ready for budget. And you're kind of like man, I wanted the full experience of spending that item was that if I wanted to fulfill the sin of the processor now, I wanted to spend the whole night in the sacred place and sleep under the stars like my messengers allottee sounded
right and you kind of feel like man I missed out. You didn't miss anything. You didn't miss anything the processor lays in and bira natively dark. By rushing there you're not going to earn any extra reward. But you got to what will get you the reward is doing it doing things the correct way in the proper manner in the proper fashion. And that is on a compass. Sakina walk with dignity. You are a judge. You are pilgrims.
you're performing hajj, you are wrong. You are representatives of this religion. You are fulfilling the legacy of prophets, Ibrahim Ali Salah.
So go with dignity. And that's a very profound lesson. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tada sir
one particular detail that about the prophets a lot is him going from alpha alpha which also teaches us something about what to do during the journey of the Hajj. The sama radi Allahu taala and who he says in one narration in the Muslim, the Mohammed, he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
on the journey from Otto Fatima Celica, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not stop for anything except using the restroom.
He did not stop for anything except using the restroom meaning that at the same time part of the hygiene is
Make your way to misidentify sooner rather than later. You're not tourists. You're Hajaj. You have a job to do. You're performing one of the greatest, most amazing noble deeds anyone ever gets the opportunity to perform. So don't be a tourist. Right? Don't stop for sightseeing don't stop to just
hang out or just, you know, pass some time. But keep moving no matter how slow and you know, methodical it may be but keep moving, keep progressing, keep going forward, stand in line. If you have to stand in line. Do you have a job to do do your job. The process of only pulled over and stopped. Lee in the narration says he had akima which is a euphemism in Arabic. It literally means to pour water. But it's a euphemism in Arabic for using the restaurant.
As we're using that in you know in English, as we say like answering the call of nature to relieve himself. It's a euphemism because we're talking about the profits a lot so we should be appropriate. So he stopped to use the restroom and that was it. But when he stopped were afraid to use the restroom he made we'll do it we'll do because I was the son of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he would always try to say the state of Voodoo as much as possible. And especially right now they're obviously worshipping and things like that. So the prophets a lot he said he did perform will do when he performed to do some people like Osama radi Allahu Allahu says, When I saw him making will
do I said, A Salah. Shall I prepare for prayer? Like, should I put down something Are we going to bring the prophets a lot even said a salata. mamak we don't pray here. We're going to pray up ahead of myself. I know prayer over here. And so they continued going until they reached alpha.
Now, as we've already talked about, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he reached the place of mazetti. And they're at the place in was stellify. He told someone to call the event they call the anon. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them called the Arma as in narrow multiple narrations of amongst them as the narration of Abdullah bin or Hama. radi Allahu talanoa they call the farmer and then the prophets Ludus and lead them in the market of prayer. Then he stood up, he did not pause in between for anything. Then he stood like he didn't go do something else in between. Then he told them stand up. He said called the armor. They called the second armor
and then the prophets logic. So let them into your Isha prayer.
One particular thing that and I'm going to continue to talk about this in the next couple of steps. The prophets Allah He said, I'm on the journey from autofab Thomas alpha, what did the prophets a lot ism keep himself preoccupied with, he continued to keep himself preoccupied with the telopea. The telopea, which we talked about previously, which is the vicar in the DA that we make this application that is said, during the act of HUD, right, the baker lamella bake, he continued to say that while they were moving from out of fat to Muslim, and he told the companions to do so as well. Now the reason was delivered the pre market depreciation. After that thermadata are Rasulullah
sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, then the prophets a lot laid down the process of laid down and he took some rest. And that's why the word in the jar is used, which means that the prophets allottee some fully laid down. And the job specifically is a word for lying down whether on one's back or even on one side. Right. So that tells you the profits a lot, took some rest. And that was the advice of the profits a lot of these I mean there are other narrations from companions, which emphasizes that that is a night for getting some rest because you've had a very busy day you stood for depending on the season that hedges in anywhere from two to five hours you've stood potentially outside if you have
to physical strength to with your arms up making.
So you've really exhausted yourself making
and the next day you also have quite a bit of activities up ahead you know coming up ahead of you and so it's very important to kind of take that opportunity whether it be 234 hours but get a little bit of rest and then the profits a lot he seven he rested there under the stars. They did not pitch any tense. Like in Mena you have tents and the profits a lot of these amount of tent right whenever you see pictures of how did you see all those white tents, that's called the place of Mina
but in Muslim differ now tense because the prophets a lot Israel game, it's an open place and he just pray there and lie down there. And that's what is done even till today.
The profits of autism continue to lay there until the budget until further time approached Hata tala alpha, when further time came. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he got up. He told them called the other day called the add on, everyone's was preparing for the prayer. Then they lined up in the profits, a lot of them told them called the Dharma.
The Dharma was called, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he led them in the fudger prayer.
The prophets a lot, he said them, lead them in the federal prayer.
After leading them into fudger, prayer, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then, before the sun came up, they prayed fudger and even before the sun rose, they left Muslim Tifa. And they started going back to me now, where they had started the day before they started going back toward the day the day before. Yes, yesterday, the day, the previous day. Excuse me, I don't want to give the idea that it was like the day before that. No, the previous day, the morning of the ninth. They started from Mena. And now they are going basically on the morning of the 10th. They are going back to where they started the previous day. They are going back to me now. All right. And there's an
interesting note. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually commented on this. He said that the people of shidduch the people before Islam, who had distorted and lost the legacy of Ibrahim alayhis salam, the Abrahamic legacy, where they were still observing kind of a hunch, but they weren't observing it the proper way.
What they used to do was they would actually stay in was that if they would spend the night and was that in fact that they would stay in was that if until later in the day, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said we are not going to follow their tradition. We're going to follow the tradition of Ibrahim Ali Salaam. And so the prophets a lot he simply prayed fudger and then they departed. And there are other narrations as well when Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala on who the year after the prophets a lot of them passed the year he passed away when they did the Hajj and Abu Bakr radi Allahu talanoa as halifa ameerul momineen he was leading the Hajj
they prayed fudger on that day in Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allah Han who used to take his time a little bit after you would be done with prayer. He would sit for a few minutes and do some mathcad and make some dough and things I guess he was kind of sitting calmly and one of the companions said that if a worker wants to do Hajj, the way the prophets allotting, some did it
then we should leave now and he said while I was still thinking that to myself, I will work with Ilan stood up and he told everyone Let's go.
So they kind of they maintained and observed that tradition of the prophets a lot. So pray fudger and depart ASAP as soon as possible after selecting fencer. However, I want to take this little moment here to again highlight one interesting thing the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did, Atmos Delica in his hij one very interesting thing he did.
There are a multitude of narrations found in Bahati and Muslim or Budo Timothy, all the major books of Hadith. In which I've done have been Omar, radi Allahu taala, and who,
later on, after the prophets, Allah recently passed, they were doing Hajj. And when they arrived, that was Danny.
The writer was the Ninja, the bread maker in Asia. They stayed there for a little while. And then Abdullah Omar, the Allahu terrano went over to some of the elderly folks, some of the women and children who were there for Hajj, and he basically while it was still nighttime, before fudger He told them, y'all can start moving ahead.
Y'all can start moving ahead. You can leave early for now and start going to me not even before further. And when some people asked that in the profits, a lot of them stayed to fudger. He said yes, the profits a lot in some state until fudger. But when I performed Hajj that year with the profits and loss of
the profits a lot. He said I'm in the middle of the night after praying Margaret Venetia. He went over to some of the elderly folks and some of the women and children and he told them, move ahead. You don't because you're staying out in the open.
Right and you say you don't have to stay here. But there is what's called the Arabic language and he literally uses word of Hassan feola aka Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. The word in Arabic is a rock song.
Product says the profits a lot of these own games they made Rosa Rosa means a concession.
Rockstar means concession. The profits are lobbyism granted them a concession. He allowed them to leave sooner in order to remove some of the hardship from them.
And not only that, there are two narrations about what he told them to do when they arrived back at Mina. Because now they're going to get to me now before everyone else is going to get to me not after fudger. So what are they supposed to do during that time? Okay, so there are two separate narrations that are very interesting, very fascinating. I've delivered our bass for the Allahu taala Anima. He says I was young. And I was there with many of the family members. Some of the elderly people like the uncle of the prophets, a lot of us have deliberately, Brava says father was elderly. He was older, some of the women and children as well I was there with them, he says, and he says the
prophets, a lot of them came over to me. And he said, Take them,
take them back to me not early before fudger. However, however, he said, Do not go and do the stoning
until the sun rises.
So that I'm being clear, let's say fudger is at 6am.
Let's say that the sun rises at 7am sunrise time at 7am. Just to keep the math easy. Right Folgers at 6am the sun rises at 7am they arrived at midnight. They prayed marketing, they pray to Asia, they stayed for a little while an hour to an around two or 3am so that they're not sleeping on the ground outside. The profits lobbies have told them y'all can go
so they go back to me now. They get back to me now let's say at 3am
and then the profits allottee. Some said to 11 our bass, go there to your tent, take some rest. When fudger comes in at six pray fudger there will be praying here y'all pray there.
And then what you do on the morning of the 10th and we're going to be talking about in just a moment is you go and there are three pillars. A lot of times folks are referred to it as a three shade box. Right the three pillars these were three places where Abraham had a setup turned around in rebuffed shape ons advances when shaitan was trying to dissuade him from fulfilling God's command of sacrificing his son. And Ibrahim Ali Sam turned around three times in rebuffed shape on and when he did that there was like a stone pillar
that was that was formed that all three of those places.
And so those pillars have been kind of obviously it's not those original pillars, they've been kind of reconstructed, but that those three places have been maintained till today. And those are three huge pillars today. And one of the things that will judge you and we'll be talking about this as they go there, and you're supposed to toss pebbles, small pebbles, seven at each of the pillars.
On the very first day, the 10th you go in there is a smaller than a medium and a large pillar. You only go to the large pillar and you toss seven pebbles at it. That's what you do the morning of the 10th so now going back to
the profits, a lot of them said go back early, get some rest, rest take them you know those who need to go back early, take them and rest in your tents. When fudger comes in at six pray fudger but do not go and stone. The pillar do not go throw the pebbles at the pillar until after seven until after sunrise.
That's one instruction he gave.
However, there is another narration from a small bit of ibaka a slob interview Baka radi Allahu talanoa. This is a small who is the daughter of Abu Bakr radi Allahu terlato. She is the older sister of Chateau de Allahu taala. And she's a very illustrious Companion of the prophets law. So she was a very remarkable, pious, amazing woman.
The prophets, she in a narration of body, she actually says that when she was performing hygiene after the profits a lot of the time, they got too much that if
they prayed Muslim, they prayed Asia. They waited for a little bit. I was selling
Then they departed. They got back to me now. It's still before fudger, like three 4am.
And she said, Let's go throw the pebbles at the pillar.
Did we just say the profits, a lot of them said, wait till the sun rises. She said, let's go through the pebbles at the pillar, the stones. And when someone, you know, respectfully asked her inquired, did the profits all of a sudden not say to wait until the sun rises, she said the prophets, a lot of them said that to Abdullah bass. And some of the young men who are going to be taking the elderly, the women and children early, he told them, You wait until the sun rises, and then throw the pebbles at that time when everybody else has got to be doing it, because you're capable of that. But for us, some of the elderly, the women and children, some of the other people, he actually said, we can do
it at night. Because obviously, it's harder to do it when the sun is out.
And 100 and 120,000. Plus people are basically doing it at now at our times, when 2 million people are doing it, it's going to be harder. So to bring ease,
to ring ease, and again, give a concession for some of the elderly or women and children and things like that, he said they can actually go even before further into it.
They can go before further into it. So what I wanted to highlight by mentioning these two things, and I know this got kind of specific about rules and regulations. But the the lesson I wanted to extract from this is you read the local becoming useful, whether you need to become a nurse,
God wants facilitation for you. Allah wants to facilitate things for you. Allah is not trying to create undue hardship and obstruction for you. Ally's not deliberately trying to make things complicated. There's always sacrifice, but trying to make things complicated for you. He's trying to facilitate things for you. simplify things for you not make them complicated. That doesn't always mean there'll be easy. hutches hard charges hard.
Right? Obviously, it's harder for some people than others. But even if you went in the most VIP package of Hutch, right?
Even then, guess what hatches hatch. It's still gonna involve some sacrifice. Right? So gonna involve some hardship. But nevertheless, wherever some concession and ease can be created, particularly for those people who need it.
Ease is created within our religion. Our religion is a religion of practicality.
Our religion is a religion of practicality.
Yes, there is worship, there are mandates or obligations or responsibilities, things to all of them. But there's practicality built into our religion. For example, if somebody has, you know, some type of issue with their knees or with their back,
and they can't pray and go to sujood on the ground.
They can stand up and then go all the way down into Jude and get back up.
It's difficult for them.
Our religion doesn't punish that person.
By saying that, no, sorry, tough luck. Gotta do it.
No, that person can sit in a chair and pray. That person can sit on the ground and pray the prophets a lot. he injured his leg once. He fell off of a horse and he injured his leg. He prayed sitting down for a whole month.
He prayed sitting down for a whole month, the profits a lot even towards the end of his life. When he became very ill he sat and he prayed.
For the last few days of his life, he sat in prayer.
Fasting in Ramadan. If someone is sick, or someone is elderly, they don't have physically the strength and the ability to abstain from food and water and drink for 14 1516 1718 hours, potentially.
Our religion doesn't punish that person say no, too bad. Have to fast if you die, don't worry, you'll be shaky. Now that's not how our religion is constructed. So what Allah subhanaw taala told us, no, but there's ease and facilitation created. Well, Ireland, Edina UT Punahou finito, Thomas key. If you've become so old and elderly or you're so terminally or sick, or ill
physically unable to fast at all. You don't have to fast. You give charity. Someone asked the Prophet, somebody said, What if I can't afford the charity? He said then nothing's on you. You're good. Allah, Allah subhanaw taala gave you your circumstances you're fine.
Even if somebody temporarily becomes sick, I'm not elderly to the point where I physically can't fast anymore. But let's just say I get the flu during Ramadan.
And for four days I can't fast I'm too sick.
Then those four days, I don't fast. I don't fasten those four days. I'll make up four days after Ramadan when I feel better.
But Allah subhanaw taala doesn't mandate No, you have to fast even if you become dehydrated end up in the hospital and potentially, no, that's not our religion. My hero Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Bill ambrane illa Allah be a sorry Hema mala Mia.
Whenever the prophets Allah December had two options in front of him, he always took the more practical of the two options, as long as it did not involve any sin.
The prophets allottee salaam says, boy, Bill Dinelli honey fee at Assam ha, Bill honey fee, it is somehow the prophets allottee. Some says I was sent with a religion that is based on the oneness of God, and is extremely practical, and is extremely practical. That is what I was sent with that is the religion of Islam.
So I wanted to highlight this, not to delve into technicalities, I wanted to highlight this and the lesson is look at how understanding the profits allottee service. And we're gonna see more examples of this. And by the way, we're gonna see more examples in the next session. Look how understanding the profits of all these areas they arrive at was they they went to autopilot. And they made
the profits a lot easier when he because he's 63 years old, almost 63 years old. When he became physically tired of standing after a couple of hours, he told us how to bring my camel and he sat on his capital and redraw. He physically did that. He's a prophet of God, it could have been a miracle it would have granted in strength and he could have stood for five hours straight.
But he sat on his camel so that in the future going forward, people see that and people know that if somebody older is doing hydro or somebody with a bad back is doing hydro or somebody with bad knees is doing HUD and they stand for an hour, and then after that they can't stand anymore. pull up a chair.
No problem, because Mohammed della salicylate is sat on his camera and radar.
When they arrive and look at the sacrifice people are making, they make to offer hours then they go from auto Fatima's any further than the pre Margaret there, the previous shot there, they sit for an hour or two there.
But obviously, you're out in the open and it's hot, and there's mosquitoes and you know, you're just kind of on the ground on rocks sitting there lying down, some comfortable. And the profits, a lot of these notices, there are some older folks or some women and children and the Prophet somebody some tells him to
take them, okay, they did, they came here, they prayed here, they did not go, we're gonna cut them, we're gonna give them a little bit of a break, we're gonna make a concession for them, we're gonna give them a little bit of a discount, and make it easier for them.
Take them ahead. And not only that,
but when they arrive in the arena, he tells her boss, you need to wait until the sun has risen. And we come to stone the pillar and that's when you come and stone the pillar. Why? Because you're a 16 year old, young, strong man. You're an 18 year old strong man.
So that's what you're gonna do.
But he tells some of the elderly and the women and children. When you get there, it's middle of the night and you don't have the sun bearing down on you. And there's not over 100,000 people all trying to get there at the same time. You guys go ahead when it's empty, and it's easy, and go throw your stones in your tongue. He cuts a cut, it gives them a concession within a concession.
That's how understanding how merciful, how compassionate the prophets a lot is on this. And I come back to the point where I kind of start where I started the discussion in this session, because it's the intention that counts. It's the spirit of the deed.
It's the willingness to do what you're told and try your best to do it the right way. And you have the best the noblest of intentions, the most noble of intentions.
And then if you needed a concession, it's okay you still get the full reward.
This will not decrease anything in terms of your reward. That's how beautiful our religion is. And that's how merciful, Allah subhanaw taala is, and that's how compassionate the prophets alonnisos was.
Right. And then the last
thing that I mentioned here, of course, is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even throughout this time at the time that was that he found, he continued to see the baker lamella bake. And then finally, they prayed Salatin fetchit in the morning
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will talk about the next part of the journey would they proceeded, but before they departed from was Delica, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told the Sahaba because they were kind of out in an open area. He said, look for and collect little pebbles, and stones. And he told him that mithril has a handle, which basically means like the size of a chick pea,
the size of a chick pea, like small and we'll see why the prophets a lot of them said, pick small stones, now big rocks, pebbles and not rocks. We'll talk about that in the next session inshallah. And we'll pause here may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all the ability to learn the life of the prophets a lot easier to benefit from the life of the prophets, Allah, and to practice everything we've said and heard. So how to like go behind the Savannah, Columbia hantek, Nashville or La Ilaha Illa into a soccer community.
